This film made by a Christian American production company appears to originate straight out of the torture chambers of the inquisition.
It is without a doubt the most disgusting and most slanderous contributions ever made to the subject of Osho.
In its incomparable maliciousness, it can only be compared to the film „The eternal Jew“ made by the Goebbels propaganda department.
With an enormous criminal energy, Osho’s statements are torn out of context or turned on their heads. So, for example, passages where Osho attempts to describe the sick world of Hitler’s thoughts are portrayed as though he is describing his own thoughts.
From the outset, Osho is represented as a perverted madman who surrounds himself with brainwashed zombies who are incalculable and ready for anything as soon as their leader gives them the command without any misgivings.
Additionally, pictures of Hitler are deliberately supported by Osho’s words and then blended with visually comparable pictures from the ranch.
Here are only a few examples from the film which make you shudder just looking at them:
At the end it is even suggested that Osho, with his teachings, drives his supporters into certain death.
This film should apparently
prepare the American people of 1985 for a forthcoming massacre
As if these units were not
enough, another 600 men from FBI SWAT-teams from Seattle in Portland were on
standby along with 800 soldiers from the state troops of the regular army.

If Osho had not left the ranch at the last minute, it could certainly have come to a large-scale massacre in Oregon.
And after this film the US public would already have a suitable explanation: their own fault, we knew all along.
The end of the film, where the Sannyasins sink into machine gun can, in this context, only be seen as a call to murder.
The extent to which Osho was
aware about the situation was made very clear in an interview he gave in
1989 shortly before his death to the American journalist Max Brecher for his
brilliantly researched book "A Passage to America":
I went to Charlotte as the
National Guard had been surrounding the commune on standby for 6 weeks,
ready to penetrate the commune.
Max Brecher: A Passage to America p. 289ff
Robert Weaver, US-Attorney in Portland said of the feared massacres on the Sannyasins:
It is not the task of the government to make their job easier for these guys (referring to the National Guard).
Osho was already clear in his
attitude in an interview from 26th July 1985:
